It could all be so simple
But you'd rather make it hard
Loving you is like a battle
And we both end up with scars
Tell me, who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
No one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

Is this just a silly game
That forces you to act this way?
Forces you to scream my name
Then pretend that you can't stay
Tell me, who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
No one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't workin', It ain't workin' (No, it ain't workin')
And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy, this is crazy (This is crazy, uh-huh!)

I keep letting you back in
How can I explain myself?
As painful as this thing has been
I just can't be with no one else
See I know what we've got to do
You let go, and I'll let go too
'Cause no one's hurt me more than you
And no one ever will

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't workin', It ain't workin' (It ain't workin')
And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy, this is crazy

Care for me, care for me!
I know you care for me!
There for me, there for me!
Said you'd be there for me!

Cry for me, cry for me!
You said you'd die for me!
Give to me, give to me!
Why won't you live for me?!

Care for me, care for me!
You said you care for me!
There for me, there for me!
Said you'd be there for me!

Cry for me, cry for me!
You said you'd die for me!
Give to me, give to me!
Why won't you live for me?!

Care for me, care for me!
You said you care for me!
There for me, there for me!
Said you'd be there for me!

Cry for me, cry for me!
You said you'd die for me!
Give to me, give to me!
Why won't you live for me?!

Care for me, care for me!
You said you care for me!
There for me, there for me!
Said you'd be there for me!

Give to me, give to me!
Why won't you live for me?!
Cry for me, cry for me!
You said you'd die for me!
